2023.06.10 20:40 AffectionateAd205 Recommendations for managing pcos.

So I’ve moved and have just finished a years worth of YAZ, i don’t feel like it really helped me fix the problems I wanted fixed because of pcos. It did regulate my periods to once a month, but my doctor (who is no longer my doctor since moving) said that YAZ should help with the excess body hair growth, the acne I have on certain parts of my body and the excess weight gain caused by pcos.
And I just still felt off, I don’t have a new doctor yet but I want some recommendations and what worked for you? I just feel stuck and I don’t know how to proceed, I keep researching all options but all have cons and I’m worried they won’t work. Maybe I didn’t get a high enough dosage of the hormones she gave me? She also said I could take metformin to help me get rid of the weight caused by it but that never happened. I’m also wanting to prevent pregnancy so something that regulates and helps my hormones and prevents pregnancy.
The options I’m currently considering is skin patch and maybe iud. But I keep seeing horror stories with the iud so idk.

I have very limited time to get a cut and no car so I have to borrow or get a ride as well. They got me in for Wednesday night but it's just not what I had planned. Going to the salon after an 8 hour shift is not the same as going on your day off.

2023.06.10 20:39 No_Boat5206 [actual short version] From depression to enjoying life. My tips from the mental journey I made, to bring structure to your road. Link to full article down below.

Hello again my fellow self-helpers,
Few days ago I wrote a post about the main lessons I learned in my mental journey starting from my lowest of low state to my current state. From my experience there's SO MUCH you can do for self help so my focus was on giving structure among the jumble mess of self help methods that are available. In broad terms, what works, and why? And so, what works best first, then second? Doing the wrong things at the wrong time will only 1. make things possibly worse in a cycle of negative self affirmation, 2. make you take much longer than needed and consequently 3. maybe even demotivate you, comfirming your believe that "It's just the way I am".
The post was recieved with positive aclaim, but with an overall feedback: it's way too damn long! You're on the internet, gotta keep people's attention span in mind ;) With that in mind, I'm now writing the summary of my summary.
!!! CRITICAL: Depending on the severity of your emotions and trauma, it's highly advised you try steps 3, 4 and 5 under the guidance of an expert. You may bring yourself to feel stuff you long repressed, only to not know how the handle the emotions and then be off worse. !!! But, at least you know what to ask your therapist, right?
(Step one and two are not processes but rather state of mind from which to work on. Let it sink in but don't get stuck on it.)
Step one: Acceptance of your own imperfection. It's okay.
Too many people I've talked to are ready to talk about the bad things that happen in their life but as soon as you start about their OWN role in the situation, they will get all defensive and maybe even antagonized. Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone has bad experiences that colour their judgement of things and the way they act. Only if you accept this and what you have done in the past as fact, only then you are open minded enough to change. Otherwise, whatever you'll learn what could've helped you, you'll dismiss from your mind as soon as you leave the therapist, either from stubbornness or as a unconscious selfdefence reflex because you don't accept that yes, also you have weaknesses.
Step two: Accept your own agency and so reject victimhood.
Don't portrait yourself as the victim of the problems. Indirectly this means "How can I change it if it isn't my fault?" Too many people are stuck in victimhood where they blame all but themselves. Sure, there's moments where it's really not your fault, but then still it is up to you how you will react. Be ready to take responsibility of your (re)actions. If you don't, you will never accept advise from anyone. If you don't you will never change because why would you, if it's always other people?
I cannot stress enough that self-reflection is key for anyone who's willing to change !!!
Step three: grounding a.k.a. to get into contact with your feelings
'Grounding' yourself is a method of bringing yourself into contact with your body so your emotions. This is necessary for future steps. There's two kinds of emotions: first, the underlying emotions that are actually the root cause, and second, the way it manifests such as sadness, self-pity, self-loathing, anger. Make sure you're not in the latter because that's mopping the floor with the faucet open.
Step four: What do I feel and why?
Or in other words: the popular phenomena called Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. What it boils down to is the focus on self-awareness, to get a good insight into your own emotions and how it subconsciously affects your daily life. I mean the emotions under the mask you're wearing. It's important to keep asking yourself WHY do I feel this? What underlying emotion or memories is there? Do this long enough and you'll likely come to one or two overarching insecurities. Likely this won't happen in one string of why's in one evening, but over a longer period of self reflection and 'oooooOOOOOOOooooh' moments.
Step five: Accept your past hurtful experiences. Process the associated emotions
This step comes apparently late, but not without reason. I suggest doing Somatic Experiencing and Fake Letter Writing as a way. But let me explain why this comes as step five. The thing is, how are you able to process your past trauma's if you've not fully mapped out what the root causes are? It won't do you much good to process 'that sad evening from last week'. No, why were you sad? Or lonely? What insecurity? What experience did you have that causes the insecurity? THAT's what you need to process.
See your body like an emotional hard drive. Everything that had an emotional impact on you, without expression, will be stored in your body, only to build up over time until you burst in emotional tantrums over the slightest of triggers. The two methods I mentioned are good ways to dig up repressed, unprocessed emotions. If you know what to dig up.
Step six: self improvement. Learn by doing. Train your subconsciousness by experience.
After you dealt with getting to know yourself intimately, after you managed to deal with painful experiences and their attached emotions, only then are you able to change. See it like this: you're on a stormy sea with wind and waves on all side and you're trying to change course. How much chance of succeeding will you have, how much effort must it take, only to be blown off course again later? Dramatic I know, but many people try to change while their insides are still jumbled up. I suppose it's possible if you have an iron grip on your discipline and put away all emotions. Fun robot life that'll be.
Check my sources for some helpful books on actual change. My focus is still to bring structure to your road. Anyway you probably want different things than me.
See the following link for a more complete story:
Mindfulness training, meditation guides, Chakra healing (whatever floats your boat, but it worked for me)
Fysiotherapist on youtube to work on posture (you'll be surprised). I recommend Body Fix Exercises channel. It's to the point and effective.
Therapies: EMDR, Cognitive behavioural therapy, Somatic Experiencing
MBTI guides on Personality Hacker. For me, understanding my type completely gave me much peace of mind
Books / audiobooks:
J. Peterson's 12 rules for life + many lectures on having a meaningful life. (whatever your stance or opinion on politics, his psychological knowledge is undeniable)
Lindsay C Gibson's Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents
M. Gladwell's Talking to Strangers

2023.06.10 20:39 MyCatsNameIsMoo My cat attacked my best friend

Writing on mobile so excuse any format issues please. I have 2 cats, they're the same age, one is female the other is male and they're both fixed. My cat Moo (Male, and about 1 year) has recently showed aggression to my best friend to the point of an actual attack in the past few weeks and I'm feeling a little helpless on what to do and just need some advice. My best friend has been around him since he was smaller than a potato and she's very kind and thoughtful of animals. He's only been this way towards her, and to top it off it's only been in instances when I'm not around so I can't even see the triggers for him. It's only happened twice so far and they were a week apart and that's enough to prove to me it's not a one off thing.
So the first scenario has some background that i think is important, my boyfriend wants to take Moo on walks because it's sad to him that a creature has to live indoors for it's entire life and never see the world, but we also agree that outdoor cats cause a lot of damage to wildlife and danger to themselves. And it was a really nice day so we got him all harnessed up(we've been working on getting him more used to the harness over time since he was about 6-7 months) and opened the door and let him explore at his own pace. But the door being open really upset him and freaked him out and he did not want to go near it, so we took the harness off after about 15 minutes of waiting to see if he'd get more comfortable. After this I went outside to set up some things and my best friend and my boyfriend went into the house to watch the cats. They decided that since the harness was out already to do some harness practice with our other cat June, but they forgot to tighten it and it slid down her torso and she freaked out hard. Like bouncing off things and scrambling hard until it fell off because no one could catch her. These two events being so close together seemed to really upset Moo, and he started acting very strange and bushy tailed while staring at my best friend. She was sitting on the floor at this point and started to get up to put some distance between them because she could feel that he was being weird. When she got up however he yowled and chased her across the room and attacked her, leading to a full bite mark on her ass cheek. 4 little teeth punctures and all, even bruised up the next day. I took my friend home that night after our bonfire we setup, and Moo seemed fine around us.
The second encounter isn't nearly as bad but I don't ever want it to get that bad again, my friend was just sitting in my room by herself and she thought Moo was approaching her, so she reached out to pet him like she always does, which is when he hissed and growled at her and she got scared he was going to attack again and came to get me because I was out putting air in my tires.
She stayed for a few nights that time and most of the time Moo seemed fine, even came to cuddle with her and ask for pets. But every once in a while he'd get a sketched out look while staring at my friend. He's never been aggressive like this and is normally very friendly to even new people. He's never bitten someone before, let alone even swiped at someone. I don't know if there are any exercises I can try to build trust between them again or if it'll pass with time. But I really don't want my best friend to feel uncomfortable coming over or my cat to feel scared when I have this particular person over, which is often. So please if there's anything I can do I'm willing to do anything.

2023.06.10 20:39 Stepfallstep My ex boyfriend of 5 years is dating the man he cheated on me with a year ago, 2 months after we broke up. How would you react?

So this week makes the fourth month that I have moved away and outs of the living situation that I was in with my ex boyfriend. The first two months saw me going up to visit him weekly as we were still trying to work out our relationship while taking space apart from each other to better ourselves. Then around the ending of the second month of me having moved away we had a very big argument, and I decided that I needed to break up with him until he made the changes that I needed him to make... little did I know at the time that this would be a blessing for him. Since we broke up, I went up to visit him twice. even as friends we still said our I love yous. We’ve been together for so long, that he did truly become my best friend, and as most of us know when we enter a relationship, we tend to isolate ourselves from our friends groups, and our boyfriends become our main concern.. Also Covid hit and that just further exasperated that.. So slowly, but surely he started to drift apart the second time that I went to visit, and we haven’t even bigger fight.. So fast forward to two or three years ago When my ex-boyfriend overdosed on heroin in my bathroom of the apartment that we lived in together.., this saw me saving his life, CPR, mouth to mouth and calling 911 all while being traumatized, handling my ex-boyfriend’s now blue body… OK back to the second time I was up there, visiting him after we broke up: I said something like oh well I don’t like my roommates and you hate living with your parents, so why don’t we consider living together again after my lease ends. He looks at me while you were in a retail store and says to me “ oh, I would never live with you again.“ I got super offended because I’ve never really done anything like that to him, if anything, I’ve stood by him and supported him like no one has ever done for him in his life. I was almost playing a housewife’s role while working a full-time job, for this man. Thinking in the back of my head “ motherfucker I saved you and have permanent PTSD because of something you put me through, (which, by the way, I have never dared speak of as my experience, whenever we did briefly speak about it because he is the person that saw the lights and almost died and so I try to keep my experience of that day to my) still wanted to live with you, so what is it that I could’ve done that was so much worse than that you never wanna live with me again.. the only things that I ever did was hold him accountable and try to better him. Even though he cheated on me after he said to me that he wanted to close our originally open relationship so that we can work on each other and our relationship. This was a year ago when he said that to me not even a day later, he says to me that he thinks that it would be a good idea for us to have a threesome together. he obviously wanted more than just me. so he got online on Grindr and he started to look at the man on the grid and he said this one seems cute and pressed on his current boyfriend’s profile. I considered it because I loved him so much. I wanted to make him happy. I started also speaking to him on my Grindr, and we seem to be hitting it off. Even though he was cautious because he said that he was afraid to get involved with us in fear of causing drama. which now looking back is total fucking bullshit because that’s exactly what he did, and he manipulated his way into being a permanent fixture in my ex-boyfriend’s life. So after he said that he was probably not going to get involved with us because of drama him and my ex-boyfriend secretly slept together the very next night. I found out about this and had a full mental breakdown. as I laid crying on the kitchen floor. My ex-boyfriend lifted me by the shoulders, looked me in the eyes and said that he would never speak to him again if that’s what it would take for me to forgive him. he promised me hugged me told me everything would be OK that he was sorry. I decided to forgive him, even though it took a while. after that point, he had me under the impression that he was not speaking to this person at all. A few months later, or in the car on our way out of town when his caller ID on his car popped up this guys name. I immediately fell silent as he quickly fumbled to hang up his phone. He then had the goal in the audacity to ask me why I was silent the rest of the ride, shaking my thigh, asking me what’s wrong what’s wrong over and over again? I didn’t say anything our lease at our apartment was ending soon after which I had plans to move away and leave his manipulation lies gaslighting never owning up to anything behind me. Sadly, I was not in the financial position to do that so after our lease ended, I moved in with his parents with him and we were doing slightly better. then the fighting started again, and I made the decision that I was going to move, and I self like a room in a four bedroom apartment about 45 miles away, and I got it and I moved away. all it took was a few dozen miles.… Unfortunately I came to find out that they never stop speaking. they fooled me. I feel so much for trail from my ex-boyfriend, whom I never thought was capable of doing something like this. I believe that they both planned what ways would get me to break up with my ex-boyfriend fastest and they executed that plan together. in April, which was after me and my ex-boyfriend had that huge fight in the retail store. The last time I visited him ever I got a request from the guy on Facebook to message me. He said something towards the fact of him being really sorry that he ever got involved between me and my ex-boyfriend and that he wished that he could have stayed out of it so that he didn’t have to deal with my ex-boyfriend’s bullshit... I didn’t reply, but I did inform my ex-boyfriend to which he was screaming, yelling, threatening to go, beat him up and all of that.…. Little did I know that was the first indicator that they had a much deeper relationship then I knew of. I thought my ex-boyfriend wanted to go beat him up to stand up for me because of how much I’m contacting me or even hearing his name hurts me.…. But obviously I know now that that’s not true and the reason he was mad at him was because they had formed a real close relationship or they both were in on it... either way fast forward to two days ago when I got a call from my ex-boyfriend telling me that he was now dating this guy. and don’t be proud of him for doing the right thing as if he called me to inform me to be a standup guy he did it because not even three hours later they made it official on Facebook and put each other in their Instagram bios.. The man that refused to give me a monogamous relationship has the words “taken by @insertguysnmae and only him” in his bio….
How would you feel? Would you feel betrayed ?

2023.06.10 20:38 hikarunagito My Dad like figure has lost it

So Let me catch everyone up to speed

In 2015-6 my dad has started researching Aliens and falling down the David Wilcox, and Corry Good hole which then evolved in to him going full on Q and becoming very violent when you go against his will to the point he nearly cost my job in 2017 that I just started that lead to him being charged with assault after giving me a concussion and leaving me bloody at home

In 2018 his son felt i should of moved in with both of them which lead to me being forced to watch his dad's youtube stream with nothing but conspriacy videos from various youtubers before they were deplatformed and moved to the 3rd party video hosters... that ended peacefully when they decided to move to colorado and I stayed in my home town for my career....

in October 2021 he found his son dead because he died due to covid and his son refused hospital treatment due to him absorbing his dads view points on Covid; his dad being so out of touch convinced him and other people he was following online that the hospitals in colorado springs were getting paid to kill people with covid...

Now after having to take sole custody and him getting the police called on him 4 times due to his actions he is getting angry to the point of screaming at his cats because i personally have my door shut to calm down because im frustrated to the point we have all this food he doesn't eat; organic canned soup, organic ramen, frozen spaghetti; because he claims we don't have enough food and we should drop and spend 200+ on organic food because his sites say the government will shut down (4th + year in him saying this) he also insists on me buying Zims and XRP crypto based on the Gesara and Nesara conspiracy... he has gotten violent against me and both or names are on the lease of the apartment; i know he needs mental help badly but isn't getting treated for it and is only thinking everyone else is at fault because we get upset because literally he could watch 1 video saying for example taylor swift was in gitmo....when she sold out the football arena in town 2 nights in a dad has completely lost it and i can't keep supporting him

A “lead” is simply a phone number that you get from a girl.

In a bar, nightclub, at a mall, at a coffee shop, on the street, etc, the key to sleeping with boatloads of beautiful women is systematically and optimally turning these phone number “LEADS” into meetups (dates) and then into “SEX”.
It will then be your choice if you want to keep the girl around to be part of your “harem” or make her your girlfriend.
So you can think of the process like this:
Acquire phone number “lead”Work the lead properly for a meetup (date)close the lead (have sex)retain the girlrepeat the process until you have your dream “harem” or “dream girlfriend”.
So as I near the big 1,000 laycount milestone, I decided to spill the beans on my ENTIRE “secret sauce” in FULL DETAIL.
My secret to systematically having sex with 100+ new girls every year.
For those of you who look at my high number of lays as being suspicious, I don’t blame you. But I have documented proof with 100s of hidden camera infield footage videos of me picking up women – which is more than any other pickup artist in the world has ever recorded.
No lead is waster
That’s my secret: working leads like a machine.
I got the first highly optimized lead system for dating figured out, I want to give back to the men out there that are struggling. Leverage my years of frustrations to get laid immediately.
What is the system? I call it The Lead Machine.
Why Machine? Because it works like a damn well-oiled machine!
Just put leads in and get pussy out!
Here is a sneak peak of what is included:
Massive Master flowchart ​​
Screenshots of conversations utilizing different parts of the chart
Dates Masterclass videos from Occam’s Razor
Videos About Dates Straight to the House
Videos About Closing at the House
Excel Spreadsheet Template for Organizing and Tracking Leads
It’s time to end that frustration, and stop wasting so much energy.
And that for a fraction of the money you are spending away inefficiently.
Stop wasting time and energy.
You don’t have to figure it out all over again. I did that for you. Been there done that.
So here I am offering the product of over ten years of optimizations, and first hand experience.

DO NOT DELIVER TO THIS BUSINESS. I had forgotten my MASSIVE cooler bag yesterday. Which I know is on me, call them and they gave me the run around about, eventually told me to call back once they open. I did. After explaining again to another person and her giving me the same crap, I just told her I'd reach out to instacart and see if they'd refund me. So then the owner calls me and threatens me if I show up for the bag. Be wary.

Train Station Buddy
I was stuck at a train station in the heat today, hiding on a stairwell keeping out of the heat when I noticed a little someone abseiling off a hand rail. I didn't get a decent picture of that lil guy as they were playing hide and seek with me but I did notice another tiny friend on the wall (pic 6 has my hand to give annidea of how tiny she was). They were pretty much stuck to the spot, anchored by a little bit of web which you can see in the first picture, just taking in the surroundings but when I filmed this little girl* she looked up at me my heart nearly melted. These are the best pics I ever taken of a Jumping Schpooder. I made the part of the video where she looks up at me a gif which you can see in the last image. She was sooooo damn cute 😭 *I'm guessing the sex

2023.06.10 20:38 Space_Goth I hope I did the right thing when faced with creepy guy

Sorry this is a bit long.
I should probably keep this somewhat vague because I’m super paranoid somehow he’ll find me. But I don’t think he’d go on this sub.
I’ll preface this story by saying this situation has never happened to me before. As in I’ve never been hit on as an adult before. There were only a few traumatic moments where old men hit on me as a minor. That was super not fun. So usually if an older man even kinda “flirts” with me, even “jokingly” it can be triggering for me.
I’m not what you’d call “conventionally attractive” as I have a butch haircut, a very alt/gothic kinda appearance and such. But I do like really glam makeup and stuff. I’m definitely someone’s type and I’m bi so I don’t really care if I appeal to the average straight guy or not. I like the way I look. In the past, I was too socially anxious for bars or parties so I was never at a place to be hit on. I also used to weigh a ton more too, so that’s another explanation as to why. Mostly circumstances though. I’m 27 but I’ve been forever single due to many of my own issues I won’t get into.
So you can imagine how jarring what happened last week was for me.
I won’t say where but I took a little trip with my parents out of state to a casino and I was blowing my money on this machine when this guy around my age staggered over to me. Yes, staggered because this guy was SO DRUNK. Super duper drunk. had a cup in his hand and was slurring his words more than Drunk Uncle from Saturday Night Live.
To say this guy was a stereotypical weirdo dudebro would be an understatement. He wasn’t ugly but wasn’t my type. Just seriously this average Joe guy. Normally he might be very threatening, but my god. His demeanor was so creepy and off-putting. I should mention that I was wearing a band shirt when this happened and that was his opener. I’ll be calling him S and redacting stuff because again… I’m paranoid. This is approximately the conversation as well as I can remember.
S: “Excuse me, is that a [band name] shirt?”
Me: “Oh yeah it is!”
S: “Ahh that’s so cool. They are so fucking awesome.”
Me: “Yeah! They are.”
S: “It looks so good on you—you’re very beautiful by the way.”
Me: “Oh. Uh. Thank you…”
S: “So my name is S. I’m [30-something] and single. I have my own apartment and job and a motorcycle. And I want you on the back of my motorcycle.”
Me: “Uhh…”
S: “Yeah we could hang out and talk about [Band]. Aw man, Band is so fucking badass.”
[I try to get him to talk about Band and tell him what album cover is on my shirt. During this conversation if I say something he stops smiling and kinda squints his eyes at me and frowns. Super bizarre. I kinda get the feeling he likes to hear himself talk and that his super chill demeanor could flip if I’m not careful. Also, he was drunk and probably barely understanding me. After a minute he keeps trying to agree to going with him on his motorcycle at some point. “Hell to the No” on that, obviously.]
S: “I know. I know. You probably have a boyfriend…”
[Joining this sub and groups like this has taught me so many things that it felt like I was taking the test IRL. I know you never tell them you’re single. I consider just for a moment saying “Sorry, man, but I have a girlfriend. I like girls.” I do like girls since I’m bi, but then I remember hearing about these assholes that get angry about it and I think about how he’s already drunk and if he has any homophobia it could come out and I could be in danger.
So I just nod in agreement and say “yeah” implying I do indeed have a boyfriend. I think to myself “If he starts getting weirder I’m gonna describe my fake boyfriend as a 6 ft tall muscular marine with tattoos and say ‘he’s around here somewhere and just to warn you, and he’s the jealous type. He won’t like you talking to me.’ I didn’t even have to get that far though luckily.
S: “We could be friends though! We could hang out later.”
Me: “I live out of state.”
S: “Me too, man! I ride motorcycle everywhere. It’s cool. What’s your name?”
Me: [fake name that I came up with so fast it was scary lol]
S: “Ahhh, Fake Name. So nice to meet you, Fake Name. You could add me on Facebook.”
Me: “I don’t really do social media, man.”
S: “We could text!”
Me: “I don’t think so, man.” (I was so afraid he was gonna get angry and was thinking I might need to get security over there if things escalated. My heart was pounding.)
S: “That’s cool. I respect that. It was so nice to meet you, Fake Name, fellow Band fan. Band fucking rules! gives me the most awkward and drunken high five ever. You have a nice night and I hope you get a BIG JACKPOT!”
Me: “haha I don’t think that’s gonna happen but I’m trying.”
S: “I hope we meet again, Fake Name. Have a good night!” leaves to go back with his buddies who are on some other machine.
Me: frantically texts me mom to come find me
After this I met my parents and we immediately went to go cash out and this mf was semi following us. He was with his group of buddies and he wasn’t even looking at me, just walking towards to exit at the same time!!! I was severely creeped out and told my parents briefly there was a creepy guy. Luckily they didn’t end up leaving behind us and got distracted by something shiny across the room and went back inside. I was so weirded out by this because of his odd demeanor, his, persistence and Nice Guy vibes.
In all seriousness, this was a scary situation for me that I wasn’t prepared for. I know it won’t be the first time this will happen but I’d love to know if there’s anything I did wrong here. I feel proud of myself for standing my ground and now I feel like I have gained a lot of self esteem because I was able to reject him and not let him walk all over me and pressure me. I don’t owe him anything. Not my number, not my time, not anything. Too many red flags. This is not the way you go about “making friends.”
Sorry for the length. Thanks for reading.
TLDR; First time being hit on. Drunk guy hits on me then suggest we be “friends.” I give him a fake name and reject him. Luckily he didn’t get angry but it could’ve gone way worse.

2023.06.10 20:38 TA_BfFriendProblem My (26NB) Boyfriend's (22M) New Friend (18NB) has been disrespectful to me and our relationship. How do I stop feeling anxious?

I (26NB) have been dating my long-distance boyfriend, J, (22M) for almost two years. To limit the gushing, he is so sweet, supportive, and caring. However, he has one major flaw, he is oblivious to flirting. I had to tell him I was flirting intentionally when we got together.
He recently joined a group hobby last year. I am super happy he is enjoying the group and making a ton of new friends. The issue is K (18NB), who joined the group about 6 months ago. I have only met them a few times but from what our friend group has said, they flirt with everyone and are super energetic. I first heard about K a month and a half into them being in this hobby group. J had lost his wallet, so K bought him a relatively expensive wallet despite him wanting to make his own. J was uncomfortable and told me about it immediately. We talked about it and decided it would be a good idea to inform K that he is taken, we were unsure if they knew at the time, and that he wanted to return the gift. K said it was from a thrift store, so they had no idea how expensive it was, and J said it was settled.
K has recently joined our friend group chat. J and K were trying to cheer up another member of the hobby group after their pet passed away. K wanted to bother another friend of ours, L, who is also part of the hobby group. J drove them over to L's house. I was on a group call with L and a couple of our other friends when J and K showed up. K was unabashedly flirting with J in front of me. I can't describe the full cocktail of emotions that went through me, but the highlights were: disgust, betrayal, hurt, anger, and insecurity. J left and went home, he wanted to pop into a private call so we could hang out. He saw how shaken I was, and we talked it out. I tend to downplay my concerns to it took a couple more talks to fully get how hurt and fearful I was about this person. L added K to the group chat that night, their request.
I created a list of boundaries I needed as a minimum and discussed it with J. He is trying to decide how much further he wants to set the line as I created minimum boundaries: i.e., stop K flirting with you. However, the next day K was in the group call being overly familiar and flirting again. I stated that I have been dating J for two years and K needs to tone it down. The flirting continued. I left the group call and J asked if I wanted to hang out. I agreed and we were playing a game together when L and K showed up uninvited at his house at 10pm. L called and J put him on the speaker phone. He said " Hey I know you are playing a game with OP right now, but I need you to come out. We aren't taking no for an answer." I heard K on his end shortly after. J said no he wasn't coming out. They threatened to get his housemates to bother him. J asked if he could go talk to them. I agreed. Needless to say, we didn't finish our game. When J came back, we talked about it. K said they "didn't want [J] to get in trouble" presumably with me. When L got back home, I went to talk to him, he understood I didn't like K but didn't know how hurt I was. We talked it out and are now fine, despite me still being angry at him for being an idiot.
I don't know K. We have talked a total of 3 times max. I know it would be a bad idea to talk to K myself due to this, so I just feel helpless. I have had to talk to some friends outside of this just to confirm I'm not being jealous and controlling to be concerned about an overly familiar friend of 6 months. I have no other problems with any of his other friends, new or old. Just K. Having our date purposefully hijacked by someone who openly flirts with my boyfriend in front of me is beyond the pale.
J will be setting boundaries with them on Sunday. How do I stop feeling anxious while I wait for him to set boundaries with K?
TL; DR: My (26NB) flirting oblivious long-distance Boyfriend (22M) of 2 years has a New Friend (18NB) of 6 months who is overly familiar. They have given him an expensive gift 2 months into knowing him, been flirting with him in front of me, and showed up at his house uninvited while we were on a date. He is setting boundaries with them on Sunday, how do I stop feeling so anxious and hurt while this gets sorted out?

2023.06.10 20:38 Novadestin r/Rainmeter and r/RainmeterRequests will go dark June 12-14 as part of blackout protest against Reddit's API changes

Hello everyone,
We’ve received multiple messages asking about this, so here’s the details. TL;DR: Rainmeter and RainmeterRequests will be participating in the larger reddit blackout, going dark from June 12th to the 14th.
As you guys may or may not know, reddit announced multiple changes to their API at the end of last month that will take effect on July 1st. These changes include, but are not limited to, moving from a free to an exorbitantly priced tiered payment system and limiting access to NSFW content. As you can imagine, this announcement caused a massive uproar across the platform since, among other things (see below), it will effectively kill many 3rd party apps, bots, tools, and services.
Due to these changes, the reddit community has decided to stage a blackout. On June 12th, thousands of subreddits (it was nearing 5,000 last I saw), including Rainmeter and RainmeterRequests, will go dark in protest. Some will return on the 14th, while others will stay dark indefinitely unless the issues are adequately addressed. Many users will also be leaving the site once/if the changes take effect while they and others are also wiping their account history to prevent reddit from continuing to capitalize off of it - even in this sub, we’ve already seen tons of posts spanning the entirety of its existence pop up in the mod log because of the latter (several being changed to ‘fuck u/ spez’ (reddit’s ceo), making it clear what the reasoning is).
Along with that, mods from across the platform have stated that they'll have to quit their modding positions as reddit’s changes will make it impossible for them to manage things and/or because this is seen as a direct slap in the face to the developers and moderators who spend multiple hours of unpaid time day in and day out to keep the site running smoothly and to offer usability and quality-of-life that reddit will never deliver on. You can read through the comments on the posts linked below to see just how shit reddit’s track record really is, but it's been said before and remains accurate now: reddit uses its mod's desires to help their communities as slave labor and makes no secret of how little they care.
So, clearly, this isn’t just some small issue and the coming changes to the platform, whatever they may be, are going to have a severe ripple effect. A situation we as a community know the frustration of all too well in dealing with things like weather services, spotify, google, etc. It’s times like this that really make people like HWiNFO’s author Martin Malik, who worked with us to keep his product free and usable with rainmeter, really stand out. So, as a reminder, please be sure to always thank the developers and the creators of the skins and plugins that keep rainmeter going!
Speaking to how this might affect skins specifically though, while most of the discussion right now is surrounding mobile apps and bots, I did find some information on how this might affect rss feeds and it wasn’t good. According to this comment, rss does fall under the API. Of course, that's just one person’s comment and I have not been able to find the original source from reddit just yet, but there is a possibility that use of reddit in feed skins could be rendered impossible in the future. How the rainmeter community may or may not be affected by these changes in other ways, we just don’t know yet.
And, despite the length of all of the above, it still just covers the basics - and, even then, it's more so about what people have planned/how it will affect this community rather than all the reasons why the changes suck. We highly recommend everyone do some reading via the links provided below to see how this will affect them and the subs they frequent. Aside from that, we’ll all just have to wait and see what the future holds. Unfortunately, no one is very optimistic.

2023.06.10 20:37 cassidyjoy19 Anxious Chihuahua Potty Training (help plz)

So my parents adopted a 5mo chihuahua puppy about a year ago and named him Ewald, but Waldo for short. When they picked him up, he was super calm and cuddly. When they got home, he turned into a little anxiety monster. He’s bonded to my dad and they adore each other.
I have tried potty training him all year, but he doesn’t let me get close to him at all if I’m standing. If I’m sitting on the ground or couch, he’ll let me get a little closer and play, but runs if I reach a hand out too fast or two hands at all. He won’t jump on the couch, but he will get on my dad’s recliner.
We have puppy pads down all the time, but he stands on the edge and pees off the side. Our carpet has to be replaced because he’s absolutely destroyed it. He’ll sometimes go outside with my dad, but my dad has severe chronic pain and some mobility issues that make it hard for him to train Waldo.
Waldo’s a very smart dog, he learned sit and down very fast when I finally got him to be comfortable enough to come near me to get a treat. We have an Adaptil defuser in our main room and he gets a calming treat once a day (Solliquin Calming Behavioral Health Supplement for Dogs) and they’ve made a difference, it’s just not enough.
Our dog groomer is also a trainer, and she’s helping us a bit, but Waldo just won’t go outside to pee. If I can get him to go outside, he just whines until he can go in to see my dad again. When my parents were on vacation, he made some progress, but that almost completely fell apart when they got back. We’ve tried two different puppy potty training aid sprays, but he’s generally uninterested. We’ve also tried a “don’t mark here” spray, but he just rolls in that one (if it’s on the carpet. If I put it outside, he doesn’t care). He also sometime eats his own poop, but I don’t catch him doing that as much anymore.
I do not know what to do. I would try putting a leash on him at all times to get him to go outside, but because he’s so small and fast, he hides in all sorts of places and I’m worried about him getting tangled and hurt. I will take any and all suggestions, I’m desperate

2023.06.10 20:37 Indigo000011 NAFLD worsening with improved PCOS

I'm wondering if anyone might be able to provide some insight here.
I've been recovering from PCOS since about a year ago. My hormones are almost back to normal levels and I've lost about 25 lbs since last year.
After having a kidney stone about 9 months ago, my urologist has been monitoring my kidneys with ultrasound and my liver, incidentally. The first one they found mild fatty deposits on my liver. I've been exercising much more consistently since then and lost some more weight since the initial ultrasound.
Last week, I had another ultrasound, and my liver has somehow gotten worse and has enough fatty deposits to be considered NAFLD. I eat according to the recommendations from my dietician, and I'm active for about 30 minutes nearly every day. I don't know why this is happening. The idea of adding more restrictions to my already fairly limited diet gives me a ton of anxiety as someone who's recovered from an ED.
Someone suggested NAC, but I'm worried about the possibility of it not working. I'm feeling pretty defeated that my efforts to get healthier don't seem to be paying off.

2023.06.10 20:36 The_Soton_Legend Pretty sure this girl is not interested in me and I'm just not getting the hint, but I'm also not 100% sure either.

Started speaking to a girl about 2 weeks ago only online so far as she's in a different city not too far from me. When I hit her up I was quite forward, cocky/confident in my approach as I usually am, and she was laughing initially and we even got to the topic of sex soon after and she said she'd "ruin" me, so I took that as a plus - heard it all before.
Then at some point during, she just switched and started calling me disrespectful and basically got really defensive with me. I handled it well and let her go on her merry way.
Then a day later she randomly messages me to say she does find me attractive, good looking, whatever and said that she liked the fact that I could handle her shitty attitude and this is how she "weans out" weak men. Okay, brilliant. Whatever, I'm only looking for a bang. You play your toxic games.
So we talk a bit more, she's suggesting talking over the phone, meeting up etc and I'm pushing for it too but before anything materialises she goes radio silent for a few days. Then once again around midnight, she randomly hits me up again but this time she wrote a wall of text explaining herself to me, this is what she said:
Look I'm sorry I open up on a drink and then retract and hide.. I have ptsd from my ex narcissistic abuses physically and mentally and its been a few years but to face it accept it and get help, facing all the shit I blocked out mentally to survive afraid I'll brake again.. I need to be healing to be happy and now I am starting to big step for me.. I want to be happy but ptsd got me scared to be not worth pain I experienced you may not get it I don't expect ya too but I'm alot even for me lol.. actually it's closed cptsd got me messed up and I can't get close to people, I can't deal with being me with any one any more.. more me and my issues.. but I want to get closer and be happy but I can't I never mean to be rude or fake or upset any one I'm sorry
No need to reply I'll regret being me tomorrow and probably go quiet again I'm not drunk but hate the thought of upsetting any one else more sorry again
I replied playing it cool, I do believe her as well, but then after this message we talk a bit more and tease and joke with her, and then she suggests meeting again and blah blah blah and then just goes fucking radio silent again and it's been two days now.
She is just one girl, but it's the game playing that is doing my head in. Empty promises and that. I really wanna fuck her, I'm gonna keep it 100. She is hot. That's the only reason I'm here typing this mess out, rather than just accepting this is probably not gonna happen and move on to someone else. I have other options as well, but because she is the only one fucking me around, my toxic ass wants to have her the most.
Btw, she knows where I stand. I'm not looking for a long term thing right now. I don't manipulate these women. So please don't try and moralise me in the comments, her issues are not my issues. I'm just looking for an objective set of eyes to tell me what's probably right in front of my face. Thank you.

2023.06.10 20:36 Burgermeister576 57 [M4F] #Massachusetts - ANR / Breast Play/ Nipple Sucking

I have a bit of a breast fetish and just love sucking on nipples. I'd love to meet someone who loves having their nipples sucked on. It's very enjoyable to me, so it should be enjoyable to you too since I like doing it for extended periods of time.
I'm not looking for sex, but open to it if goes there. The main goal is to just be cuddled up on the couch or bed with your nipple in my mouth.
Age (18+), looks or race are not an issue, but smaller breasts do take priority. 32A to about a 34C is the range I prefer.
I'm single and can host. Open to some car play too.
If we click, it could be something we do on a regular basis.
If interested, send a chat message and put some effort into it. "Hey", "hi", "what's up" and similar low effort responses will just be ignored. Tell me your age, size (number and letter) and location in the first message. Pictures are also nice touch too but not required.
I've chased too many dead ends. I'm tired of the games and the players. Get my attention. Keep my attention. Use full sentences. Show me what you got! Make it happen.
- Unfortunately due to the fake one day account responses, i've had to limit chat responses to accounts 30 days or older. I also don't respond to post comments that say "DM me".

2023.06.10 20:36 KaciLovesLemons 1 Hour Bus Ride with Crush

This Sunday, is our states track meet, which is 1 hour away from our school. Me and my crush, let's call him, Runner, are both taking the bus there. I've had a crush on Runner since October, but I was always too nervous to talk to him. Last week, I finally added him on Snapchat after our many, "high tension" moments together. We never really talked one on one in real life, so I took my chance on Snapchat. (He's not really active on his phone, so I was deciding between Discord or Snapchat) He thankfully accepted my request and we exchanged convos together from time to time (Mostly about music, track, and school field trips) Yesterday, after asking half of my friends if it was dumb, I asked him if he wanted to sit with me on the bus, on Snapchat, and he said sure. I was literally jumping for joy, but then I realized it's probably going to be so awkward. Runner usually sits by himself during away meets, so I took this as an opportunity to get to know him, or have someone to talk to. Also, because I asked, I'm pretty sure he knows I like him (He's kind of a "know-it-all"). I usually sit with the same girl for every away meet, so I wanted to end off the last meet with a new friend. Give me advice please

2023.06.10 20:35 Icy-Canary6422 Deciding on first bike- how important is good repair shop in deciding?

Hoping this is the appropriate forum to ask a couple questions to this very knowledgeable group
I live in Nassau county Long Island
I am in the process of researching so I can buy my first bike. I am considering used Harley Davidson street 500 or 750 or Kawasaki Vulcan 650.
How important should it be in my decision making process to have a good repair shop for either of these brands close by? From what I can see online there aren’t many places to take a Kawasaki in for a repair near me. Does anyone know a place on long island I would be able to go to if I needed a repair to a Kawasaki?
Also for used bikes are there any good extended warranty companies that are readily accepted by repair shops on Long Island?
Thank you for any input.

2023.06.10 20:35 anoncheesegrater why are narcissists obsessed with finding “dirt” on you?

I grew up with a narcissistic mother and she almost had a fetish for finding things I was doing that she could get mad about. She would go through my phone on an almost constant basis, I tried to delete messages as often as I could but she always managed to take it when I hadn’t in a while. I mean she was obviously pretty fucking awful to live with and very abusive so I did confide in friends pretty often. She would find these text messages and blow up on me every time about how I was “turning the whole town against her,” as if me telling some teenagers that my mom sucks is going to affect her reputation.
I mean she would look through everything. It kind of reminds me of how people act when they have a partner they don’t trust. Just always looking through their phone, and looking through absolutely everything. I am a firm believer that if you feel I need to look through someone’s phone you do not go through text threads, camera roll, or conversations unless you are given a reason. For example, if you found a random girls name you don’t recognize in your boyfriends texts then yeah … check that shit. But my mom went through everything.
There were times where she would keep my phone for weeks or months on end as a punishment. I would have to tell all my friends to stop contacting me because she would open new texts that I got.
She was also constantly making shit up to see if she was right about it. Like she was insanely paranoid. She was convinced that I hated her and I was out to ruin her life. When in reality, I was just trying to survive her. If I really wanted to ruin her life I could have very easily told people what she was actually doing to me. I always kept shit vague and kind of underwhelming because I was terrified of her. But the abuse went beyond what I told anyone in high school.
I had a few friends witness her flipping the fuck out on me, and she would probably tell me I could never hang out with that friend again. She would make an ass of herself and then blame it on me. Saying she doesn’t want them over if they are going to judge her. Like honey… People wouldn’t judge you if you did an act like an insane person. She wants threaten to call the cops because a friend of mine stood up for me. My mom was absolutely going off and my friend said something like “Can you chill that’s your daughter.” My mom literally called the police. She then forced me to text that friend later on a long winded story about how my mother has had a hard life and she doesn’t have a right to judge her. It was 100% my mother‘s words, and that friend to this day still thinks that that message came from me.
